Preparing Boys for Battle

William Brown, & Scott Brown
In Stock

  • In this audiobook, you will find lessons for manhood that arise from the WWII battle for Iwo Jima. It contains sixteen critical exhortations that I believe fathers must deliver to their sons. Why? To discipline them to be the mighty warriors God intends them to be.

    This is a book about leading boys to be truly great boys and, someday, men. A generation of heroes does not just pop up out of nowhere. It is prepared by its fathers. So pull up a chair and settle in as World War II P-51 fighter pilot Bill Brown reads of battles, bombs, planes, and foxholes – experiences from his youth during the battle for Iwo Jima.

  • This book is a great way for fathers to talk to their sons about manhood. The author intertwines biblical character qualities with the details of his father's experience on Iwo Jima in World War II. His descriptions of the battle scene are riveting, and so powerful because they are true. Excellent book - you won't be able to put it down! -- Fisher of Men
